Playing The Archive

CASA research is featured in the Times Educational Supplement today. The article is an account of teacher Tom Starkey's visit to UCL and highlights the CASA projects Drones for Good and Playing the Archive as examples of pioneering ed-tech, describing the latter as 'original and culturally important'.

Playing the Archive is an ambitious programme of research and cultural production, exploring the nature of play by bringing together archives, spaces and technologies of play, along with people who play, both old and young. The project aims to digitise and archive 20,000 accounts of play for children collected by folklore experts Iona and Peter Opie during the 1950s and 1960s. It runs from September 2017 to August 2019.

Drones for Good is led by Richard Milton and Flora Roumpani and combines drone technology and mapping technology in urban planning in Lima, Peru.
